Progressive Era Leading Women Bibliography Sept 1996

Query From Pamela Tyler 17 Sept 1996

I would like to hear colleagues' suggestions of good sources for examining women leaders of the Progressive era. I am referring to Emma Goldman, Margaret Sanger, Jane Addams, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, etc. Ids there one particularly good source that looks at their contributions? I am looking roughly at the period 1890-1920. I am familiar with biographical works, as well as autobiographies, but would like an overview that contextualizes and places them squarely in the Progressive Movement. Thanks for any help you can offer.
